Jonathan B. Wiener, Perkins professor of law, environmental policy and public policy, is a co-author of a new report, “Transatlantic Patterns of Risk Regulation: Implications for International Trade and Cooperation.” Published by the International Risk Governance Council in Lausanne, Switzerland, the report was commissioned by the European Parliament to help inform US and European Union relations regarding regulatory policies and comparative risk regulation. It focuses on four sectors: food safety, automobile safety and emissions, chemicals and pharmaceuticals. Wiener co-wrote the overview and conclusions and the sections on food safety and automobiles. Andrea Renda, Lamb Regulatory Fellow at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, was a peer reviewer of the report.
